gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, healthy-ish chocolate bread that let's be honest is more like cake.
Recipe type: sweet
Serves: 10
  • 1 egg (or 1 tbsp flax meal + 3 tbsp water)
  • 1 cup oat flour (be sure oats are labeled "gluten-free" if avoiding gluten) (to make flour pulse oats in blender or food processor)
  • ½ cup raw cacao powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 3 large ripe bananas
  • ⅓ cup virgin coconut oil, melted
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ½ cup chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Get out a 9x5 loaf pan (alternatively for a more cake-like presentation you can use an 8x8 dish or a round). Grease or line the dish with parchment paper.
  2. If using egg substitute, in a small bowl combine flax and water and whisk. Set aside 5-10 min. to let gel.
  3. In a large bowl, combine oat flour, cacao, baking soda, salt and whisk to combine.
  4. In a blender (or in a bowl with a mixer or hand mixer) combine bananas, coconut oil, coconut sugar, vanilla, egg (or flax meal mixture) and blend/mix.
  5. Pour wet ingredients into dry and stir to mix evenly. Stir in ¼ cup chocolate chips (feel free to add more if you prefer extra chocolatey).
  6. Pour batter into baking dish. Sprinkle the rest of the chocolate chips on top.
  7. Bake for 1 hour.
  8. When done, insert a toothpick to test to see if done. If the toothpick doesn't come out mostly clean (aside from a little melted chocolate from the chips) then continue cooking another 5-10 minutes.
  9. Let cool completely before cutting.
  10. Note: When I made this I cut the bread into slices and then halved the slices to make smaller squares, sort of like brownies. I did still eat them two at a time, though. ;)
